On the east coast of the island of Rhodes there is Pefkos, a small maritime settlement also known as Pefki.

Where you can admire, among the narrow streets, many traditional fishermen’s houses, who founded this village many years ago. Pefkos is located in the southern part of the island, so it is quite far from the most populated centers (like Rhodes and Kallithea, which are more or less an hour’s drive) that are in the North, however the area surrounding this settlement is rich of other picturesque fishing villages that are worth visiting.
Once in Pefkos it is inevitable to be completely involved in an extraordinary atmosphere of tranquility and peace, in perfect union with the beautiful nature, which offers visitors extraordinary views and a clear sea, perfect for a refreshing swim. This village, although not very large, houses any shop that is necessary for a tourist: equipped beaches, hotels, resorts, but also seafood restaurants (strictly freshly caught!), Shops and bars of any kind.
Pefkos beach, among the best on the island, is equipped, both for the bath and also to allow many visitors to try out every day different breathtaking adventures. Water sports such as water skiing or quieter activities and suitable for families as a ride on a pedal-boat or on a boat. It must also be said that in recent years this village has been experiencing significant economic growth, thanks to the ever-increasing of tourism. A factor that implies the presence of many modern facilities, rich in cutting-edge services.
